Giant Installation of 150,000 Native Australian Blooms Displays the Power of Flowers
Known for her breathtaking, larger-than-life floral installations, Rebecca Louise Law’s newest piece sticks to that distinct, flower power approach. The artist's largest venture of its kind to date, The Canopy is composed of 150,000 native Australian flowers entwined together with carefully concealed copper wire. Based in East London, Law is an fine artist with a thriving green thumb, making use of her talents to create stunning pieces primarily out of all-natural materials.
This installation contains a wide array of vibrant flower varieties, including rodanthe, hydrangea, protea, statice and roses among others, arranged together to form a lovely capsized bouqet. Each of Law's lively pieces are built uniquely and can take between 1 day and 1 week to finish, depending on their size. Her lovely works are known to tease at the "relationship between man and nature,” as she creates thriving gardens and then places them in the most unexpected settings.
From June 22nd this striking blooming canopy will hang in the Eastland Shopping Mall in Melbourne, Australia, where mall-goers can appreciate the fragrant botanical cloud blossoming overhead.
